Today is a great day for J. Cole fans. The North Carolina-raised rapper just announced the “Forest Hills Drive” tour, which will kick off next month.

The performance trek will begin in Eugene, Ore., and hit other cities like Boise, Idaho; Salt Lake City, Utah; Santa Ana, Calif. and Tucson, Ariz., just to name a few.

The Roc Nation artist is touring in support of his critically-acclaimed 2014 Forest Hills Drive album, which he released at the close of last year. The album opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, giving the 30-year-old his third No. 1 album of his career.

Songs from the project including “Apparently” and “Fire Squad” will likely be performed in addition to those from Born Sinner and Cole World: The Sideline Story.

In an interview with Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Frannie Kelley on NPR‘s Microphone Check, Cole said 2014 Forest Hills Drive was supposed to be a double album, but he later changed his mind.

“People don’t understand the decisions that go into making the album,” he said. “Like, the scenes I had to cut to make this album. At one point this was a double album, and making those cuts was soooo hard. And certain decisions like that are so hard to do.”

Opening acts on the upcoming tour, beginning March 2, will be Cozz, Bas and Omen, all Cole’s artists on his Dreamville label. The tour will run through March and continue until first the week of April.

Cole will close out the tour on April 7.
